Sonoma County, CA. ~ When a catastrophe happens, the re- silience of the human spirit comes forward. From the fi rst responders to the neighbor next door, the common thread of di- saster ties us together. When times are at their worst we are at our best. We are Sonoma Strong.

of homes that were reduced to ashes are overwhelming, but Sonoma County is strong. These are homes lost and fami- lies displaced. In a time that the housing crisis was stressed enough, we now have even less inventory and more stress.
